Helpers Along the Way



St. Teresa of Avila wrote that Christ has no hands on earth but ours.  Do you think of your hands as being Christ’s? 


Thank you for all the people
who have encouraged me
in my life.
Some are still alongside me on the path,
and others joined me for a short while,
but impacted my life with their generosity
and kindness.
May I celebrate all those who helped me,
all who were your hands. 


Is there someone in your life who has helped you that you might not have thanked yet? Write them a note, or text them–let them know their efforts have made the world a better place.

1 thought on “Helpers Along the Way”

  1. God Our Father, give us the humility which realizes its ignorance, admits its mistakes, recognizes its need, welcomes advice, accepts rebuke. Help us always to praise rather than to criticize, to sympathize rather than to discourage, to build rather than to destroy, and to think of people at their best rather than at their worst. This we ask for thy name’s sake and In Jesus Christ name. Amen.
